Quick Dinner

This is a short week for me with our pending vacation. Here is Tuesday night's dinner.

These are the store bought, "fresh" tortellini pasta with a sausage filling. I'm pretty fond of these filled pastas. They are generally pretty tasty, the cook fast, they are reliable and can make a satisfying meal.

While the water boiled and the pasta cooked, I made the sauce. Onions in olive oil (1/2 onion, finely diced), garlic, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. When soft and just starting to brown...

...pour in about 1/2-1 cup dry white wine. Simmer until reduced by half. Add one bell pepper, chopped, and simmer until tender, then add 1/2 a can of diced tomatoes, cook until heated thru. Adjust seasoning to taste.

Toss cooked pasta in the sauce and serve hot. A pretty balanced meal, fairly low fat, home-cooked and satisfying. Good to go!
